NEW BEDFORD TEXTILE SCHOOL 

NEW BEDFORD, MASS. 



THE FOREWORD 

The Staff presents the Fabricator to the Class of 1925, hoping that 
its readers will not judge them too harshly. 

Although essentially a class book, we have endeavored to include our 
school in general and sincerely hope we have fulfilled our purpose. To those 
of the faculty, students and advertisers, who have helped to make this 
edition possible, we wish to extend our gratitude and may this Fabricator 
cf 1925 tend to keep in mind the fact that we, as a class, should assist each 
other in any way possible.

TO THE FACULTY 

As a class for the past few years we have been given over to the tender 
mercies of the New Bedford Textile school, which has in turn through the 
ministrations of you endeavored to store our minds with the art of textile 
manufacturing. 

There is no doubt that in the past many of us have endured conflicts and 
quarrels, mostly through misunderstanding, but we realize now our mistakes 
and gladly place on record cur gratitude to you for your rendered services. 

We hope by our future lives we may show our appreciation to you. 

THE GRADUATING CLASS OF 1925.

WILLIAM SMITH 

Principal 

( ) Friend ! O best of friends ! Thy absence more 
Than the impending- night, darkens the landscape o'er 

Mr. Smith assumed the office of principal of the school just before 
this class's entering - and we are honored at being the first freshman class to 
come under his supervision. 

As students, we have recognized his exceptional ability as Principal. 
in correlating his work with our everyday lives, in such a manner, as to 
make our work more interesting and vital. Therefore we are grateful to 
have been under his guidance for three years. As Alumni, may we live up 
to the ideals which you have set before us and prove our gratitude.

SAMUEL HOLT 

Assistant Principal Designing Dept. 

Mr. Holt has had many years experience both in weaving and designing. 
He gained his textile knowledge attending Manchester Technical School and 
Cheshire Institution for Weaving and Designing. Coining to America, he 
engaged in various positions pertaining to weaving and designing until he 
became assistant in weaving and designing in the Lowell Textile School. 
His health then failed him and he went to Florida for a rest. 

When the New Bedford Textile School was built he was offered a 
position in the Weaving and Designing Department, which he accepted. 

The school is to be congratulated on having such an able instructor 
among the faculty. He is a widely known authority on the subject of weav- 
ing and designing.

MAURICE H. CROMPTON 
Mechanical Engineering Department 

.Mr. Crompton came to this school in 1914 as an instructor in the 
Mechanical Department and was promoted to head of the department in 
1917. By virtue of his varied experience in some of the leading mechanical 
plants through the United States, he is well fitted for the position. 

He has made an extensive study along mechanical lines which he teaches, 
and practically all the courses in his department are original with him. His 
ability to explain to the minutest degree, problems that confront the 
student, has made him one of the school's leading teaching assets. 




[I'iftcen] 




FRED E. BUSBY, B. S. 
Chemistry, Dyeing and Finishing Dept. 



M, I. T. '97 



Mr. Busby has been the head of the Chemistry Department for 6years and 
he deserves a great deal of credit for the manner in which he presents a 
hard subject so that it can be clearly understood. Mr. Busby has had a 
vast wealth of practical experience acquired in the laboratories and finish- 
ing plants of New England, which combined with the theory gained at 
M. I. T. has made him an authority on the subjects which he teaches. 

Ever willing to spend time with a backward student has gained for him 
the reputation of being a patient and efficient instructor. Aside from his 
duties as an instructor he has ably helped the Athletic Association in the 
capacity of chairman of the Faculty Advisory Board. 



[Sixteen] 



DANIEL H. TAFT 
Carding and Spinning Dept. 

Mr. Taft came to this institution in 1920 and after serving- as an assis- 
tant in the carding- and spinning department for three years, took charge of the 
artment as successor to Mr. Smith in 1922. Mr. Taft has had 25 years 
experience in mills located in New England and thereby gained a good 
■ ictical knowledge of cotton yarn manufacturing, which he ably imparts 
to the student in a straightforward and intelligent manner. 

Mr. Taft started work as a sliver lap tender and by the dint of hard 
labor and study has held all positions of responsibility up to and including 
carding overseer. Before coming to the school, Mr. Taft was overseer of 
carding in the Shipment Knitting Mills for seven years. 




[Seventeen] 



LEWIS G. MANNING 



N. B. T. S. 1909 




Knitting Department 

Mr. Manning became head of the knitting department three years ago 
as successor to the late Mr. Frank Payton. 

Previous to coming here he has held executive positions in some of the 
foremost knitting" mills in the country. 

Mr. Manning is a former student of the school having been graduated 
with the class of 1909. The knowledge he gained at the school combined 
with the practical experience derived in the knitting mills has gained for him 
an expert understanding of the intricacies of the art of knitting. Of late he 
has become interested in knitting of Rayon and has conducted a vast amount 
of research, with the result that he is now considered an authority in this 
line. 

He has been interested in the sports of the school and was the coach 
of one of the best basket ball teams the school has ever turned out. 



[Eighteen] 



WILLIAM ACOMB 



Weaving Dept. and Warp Preparation Department 

Mr. Acomb has been with the school several years both as an evening 
1 day instructor. He took over the position of head of the department 
on the retirement of the late Mr. Yates, former head of the department. 
He is an instructor who has had many years of experience in designing 
and weaving- i n the various mills in this city and Europe and the knowledge 
which he has so gained has only been derived after years of study and 
perseverance. 

His knowledge of mill conditions has made him a very efficient and able 
teacher and his ability to impart to the student this knowledge cannot help 
but be an inspiration to them when they enter the mills. 

Always abreast of the times, he has introduced many new ideas into the 
curriculum of the Weaving Department.

HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF 1925 




IMILAR to the gathering of a Scottish clan in the days gone by came the members of the class 
of 1925. From near and far came the happy throng, each with the wild desire to master the 
textile game. 

Mr. Holt was the first member of the faculty with whom an acquaintance was established. 
Our first favorable impression of him was of short duration as he informed us that our hard 
earned jack must now be exchanged for analysis books, pick glasses, etc. Those men taking 
the chemistry course fared little better as they were parted from ten bucks to cover destruction 
of laboratory materials. 

The ensuing weeks saw the boys gradually becoming accustomed to the various duties of a Super- 
intendent, Treasurer, or the like. 

In cloth analysis and designing we soon learned that a dent was something more than a mar on a 
polished surface, also a reed did not mean a blade of tall grass growing by a brook. The class tackled 
the weaving problem for a fall. The boys were given wrenches and immediately set upon the task of 
destroying the looms. We — "losed" — all the gears, and broke the cast — irun — levers and cams. 
We then assembled the loom with the remaining parts without having lost any of the proverbial "ten 
golden minutes set with the sixty diamond seconds.'' 

It did not take us long to realize that a chance to catch up on slumber, lost over a week-end, was 
afforded on Monday mornings during carding and spinning lectures. As time went on Mr. Taft made 
clear to our sub-conscious minds the ill treatment to which cotton was subjected. 

During this period athletics took a great deal of our time. Football claimed the following, Ramos, 
Novick, Rigby, Novick, Hayden. I might say without a word of a boast the class did much to bring 
sports on a par with other schools of like standing. Later on the basketball team and the baseball team 
issued their call for players and our class contributed generously to the said sports. The teams were 
coached by Messrs. Grimshaw, Manning and Bayreuther and they did their work well. Praise may not go 
far but the results speak for themselves. 

With half the year gone the instructors tried to eke out their revenge for past indifferences by pre- 
senting us with our mid-year exams. Needless to say we still retained the upper hand by passing same 
with flying colors. The remainder of the year was spent in instilling in the mind of many a concrete 
head the basis of good textile manufacturing. The end of the term saw the granting of a well earned 



[Twcuty-two~] 



cation. The knowledge gained in the first year was well put to use during the said vacation in the art 
of sweeping and oiling at SI 5 per. 

Fall brought the buys back to school and work started with vim and vigor. Double cloths and lenos 
presented their difficulties to us. It is said even unto this day their mysteries are still unsolved. At 
this time Mr. Crompton tried to convince us that steam boilers were essential to the running of any 

plant. Of course most oi us knew that they were found in all mills hut the impression that they are 
needed, to give the engineer a pay each week and a place must be provided for null operators to sneak in 
a smoke now and then on company time, still prevails. Monday and Friday afternoons were pleasantly 
spent sitting on the radiators in the chem lab watching the contents of the dye pots merrily boil. If 
time hung heavy on our hands the chemistry representatives of the class entertained with their novel 
pranks and idiocisms. Father Time then called in the second year and vacation once more loomed into 
sight. 

Before bringing to a close this history of the class of 1925 it is absolutely necessary to make a brief 
mention of our more or less famed members.

Hitch Papkin. the hoy who'll fix it for you. 

The three musketeers, namely Beaumont. Clancy and Dupont.

Charlie Young, purveyor of Textiles and Chop Suey. 

Farmer Howard of Acushnet. 

Blake and Sun, competitors in art. 

Tsao — China's Prince of Wales. 

Paradis — Mark Antony's only rival. 

The third year came round much too soon and found us grinding the axe preparatory to the finishing 
f our conquest. The ever loyal instructors smoothed down the rough edges of our learnings and put us in 
a position where we hope we shall be able to conquer the textile world and reach the top.

in any way, we would all know it was "Stan." For what was the bridge

"Stan" has always been to the fore in school life, both in studies- and 
social life, besides playing guard on the football team in his freshman year. 
As secretary of his class he has performed his duties well, and the class 
history written by him calls for much praise.

Our genial Mr. Beaumont. The admirable quality about Bill is his 
seriousness, and his ability to apply himself to what ever task he undertakes. 
Although he had plenty of experience in the mill before he came to school, 
he realized that he didn't know it all, and this attitude has made him popular 
with the teachers and students alike. He is one of the few, that the rest 
of the students envy when final reports are read. But to victor goes the 
spoils, and Bill has certainly worked and is deserving of every honor he 
attains. 

We haven't seen much of him outside of school hours, but as a little inside 
dope we'll add, that as assistant editor, his stabilizing influence saved many 
seniors from getting slammed, more than they already have.

with his tales of "when I was in the mill." but so far has been unlucky as he 
has been handicapped by the lack of experience. Since coming to the school 
he has joined the ranks of the Benedicts, and is well on the road to Happiness. 
\\ ith the coming of graduation he finds that he has another road to hit and 
that is the road to Success. With his practical experience, combined with his 
theoretical knowledge and the ability to stick to a job, it seems as though 
he is bound to go high on the ladder of Success.

And I learned about Spinnin' from him." This may not be strictly 
from Kipling but it conveys the idea that Dupont often gave us the ins 
and outs of spinning and its side issues, for as you perhaps know he was 
a spinner long before Prohibition. Having been in positions of responsibility 
in the mill, and having put his time at school to the best advantage it is 
reasonable to expect that he will land a good position immediately upon 
graduation. So, "Dupie" old kid, don't forget that Textile turns out some

one of the highest in all his classes. 

Coming from the wild and wooly parts of Acushnet, he has made himself 
prominent at all our social affairs as connoisseur of the checking room. The 
country lite and fresh air has made him very good in this capacity. But 
it is as class treasurer that we will always remember him. Oi ! How he 
choked the shekels ! Judging him from the qualities he has already shown

Nathan is looking forward to the time when he will be establishing a 
Knitting Mill. This will be a Godsend to New Bedford as a large number 
of "blow hards" are predicting that cotton manufacturing is going south 
and New Bedford will be a deserted city. But this will be offset when "Pap" 
opens up his knitting mill, and the townspeople will take a new lease on 
life. He has already had his confidence looking over the situation, and if 
everything is favorable it looks as though he will amass a large fortune. 

Here's hoping you are successful and produce something new to revolu-

this country was doing in the way oi cotton manufacturing. The remark-

Once upon a time a dusky youth in Hawaii happened upon a book of 
Textiles while wandering- through a pineapple grove. How it came there 
no one knows, hut it is reported that one of Mr. Smith's little birds dropped it 
there. This youth after reading about the wonderful cotton cloths that 
could be made if one only knew how. pictured himself as a deliverer to the 
womenfolk of that famous little isle, who finding the shredded wheat they 
were accustomed to wearing, very unattractive. 

Thus we find Tom in here, having gained the necessary knowledge. 
already to go back and start the first mill in Honolulu. During the time he 
spent in Xew Bedford he has made a large number of friends through his 
musical attainments, he plays a hot ukelele. It was as a member of the 
famous Grimshaw's Hawaiian Troupe that the world at large first met him, 
having toured the country and appearing before the elite of aristocracy. 
Well Mister Tom if your mill should fail, you can always play that ukelele 
and keep the wolf from the door.

"Walter" is indeed one of the most popular Chinese students at the 
school. He is very straightforward when speaking to anyone and is always 
desirous of getting to the bottom of things. His manner of dress is all 
that it should be, and if anyone wants to know what the well-dressed man 
should wear, our suggestion is that you take a look at Walter. He is one 
of the best fans and supporters of school athletics, although not actively 
engaged in them. When Walter goes back home and starts manufacturing, 
the other manufacturers will have to watch their step because he intends to

Joe is a quiet sort of a fellow who always feels that responsibility of 
his, an excellent student, but has a decided fondness for collecting lab. 
antiques. This co-worker suffers in pain for the beaucoup gear that he has 
misappropriated. When he makes his presence known desks are locked 
tightly. 

Joe patronizes the local terpsichore frequently without offering any 
donations. His lady friends, who are numerous, extending from coast to 
coast, Mattapoisett to Fort Phoenix, flock to a local dance hall to meet our 
fair Joe, who is always free from the clutches of tax collector. 

His many ambitions will be a credit to the "School Worth While," it is 
expected to hear big things of Joe in the analytical world. 

Wish you luck Joe, remember your classmates when you have climbed 
the ladder of success.

"I immie" came to this country from Shanghai, China, to learn the 
"Why's and Wherefores" of cotton manufacturing. He has done that and 
a few other things on the side. He is better known as the tennis champ 
of the school, having defeated all comers in the tennis tournaments con- 
ducted by the Tennis Club and after he has made a couple of million, will 
probably be a member of the Davis Cup team. After leaving Textile school 
"J immie" intends to spend a year in the School of Commerce of the New 
York University where he will take up factory management. So when he 
goes back home he ought to have quite a few new ideas to give his father, 
who, by the way, is an alumnus of New Bedford Textile.

Our business man extraordinary. Not content with being an ordinary

from Honolulu, the city of pineapples and few clothes, he made himself right 
at home in our fair city, although he missed the pineapples. When he goes 
to apply the knowledge that he picked up at N. B. T. S., he will have to go 
elsewhere than his "old home town" because there aren't any mills there. 
After a course in Business Administration at Boston University, he intends 
to go to China, where he can put to good use his knowdedge of Chinese 
customs and language coupled with his textile training. No doubt Charlie 
will succeed.

was immediately enrolled in the society of "Regular Fellows." As a knitter, 
he has no equal, and when he lands back in Araby with his sample book,

There is a very old saying that fits "Chuck" most appropriately and that 
is "You can't keep a good man down." The reason for all this ballyhooing 
is because in the time that "Chuck" has spent in Textile he has always been 
one of its shining lights. What would the results of all the basket ball games 
have been if "Chuck" hadn't been there. He never crashed his way into 
popularity ; he was shoved there by the ever grateful student body. 

Aside from his scholastic life "Chuck" is making a name for himself in 
the braiding trade. That mill that he and his father are running over in 
South Attleboro, will soon be on the lips of every blind man peddling shoe 
laces on the street corners. He will be their savior. There are bright things 
ahead for you "Chuck" old kid and if you return to school next vear for

They tell me that in the days gone by, 

Before the days of gin and rye. 

Before maidens wore their stockings rolled ; 

Quaint bards around the country strolled. 

Took down their harps and banged the strings, 

And sang of love and other things. 

They sang of war and ladies fair 

Till they were told to take the air. 

But I'll not bore you with such drizzle. 

Their songs turned out to be a frizzle. 

I'll sing of the class of '26,

FRESHMEN 



[Fifty-three] 



CLASS OF 1927 




EPTEMBER, 1924, ushered in a new era in the history of the New Bedford Textile School. Classes 
of promise have been here before, but never one with quite the same qualities of the 1924-25 
freshmen. All are agreed on that point. Mr. Taft, himself, has declared it, if not from the house 
tops, at least in no uncertain voice — hence it must be true. 

The first week or so of the term was a time spent mainly in dashing- hither and thither in an 

attempt to get used to the new surroundings, and to one another. Gradually things became 

straightened out and we were able to see the signs of budding genius in the various members of 

the class. Hughes progressed so rapidly that he has now given up his studies in order to devote his 

energy to the writing of a new work entitled, "Learning the Cotton Business in Spare-time." 

As is usual we are made up of diverse nationalities. It was surprising to notice how well Scotland 
was represented. Although there are only two who can claim to be of real Scottish blood, there is, no 
doubt, more or less Scotch in us — on occasion, Keebler, of the chemistry, is my authority for that state- 
ment. 

The freshman class has been taking a part in all the activities of the school, and the Chemistry 
department in particular, furnishing the general moral tone by its formation of the "Non-swearing Club." 
The requirements for membership are quite simple. Each swear-words calls for a deposit in the club's 
cash box. As far as we know they have not decided for what purpose the proceeds will be used, but 
Mercer suggests that a school cafeteria should be built. He points out it is highly undesirable for a young 
student, fresh from the care of a home, to be compelled to go all morning without any breakfast — we 
understand the matter will be taken up with board of trustees. 

It has been touching to see the manner in which the faculty respond to our feelings of kindness 
toward them. It is even said that Mr. Acomb feels such an affection for us that he makes a nightly 
pilgrimage with the express purpose of tucking into bed some of the freshmen. This gives them a new pur- 
pose in life and stimulates them to go on with their daily tasks with renewed energy. 

We deserve credit for our foresight in furnishing the school with a professional comedian, Cook 
fills this position to perfection, and is, indeed, the only person we have ever been known to bring a smile 
to the face of Dan Taft. For this alone we should be grateful. 



[Fifty-four] 



In sports our class has held up their end very well. We think the freshmen on the basket ball 
squad, Bruce and Schofield, played no small part in the success with which the school met in that line. 
The members have also turned out for the track squad. Although the baseball team, is in the embryo 
stage, we feel cur class will be well represented, in Carlson, Searles, Waring and others. 

Apart from the classes and sports we flatter ourselves that we are a very congenial lot. The differ- 
ent members pull together irrespective of nationalities or fraternities to which each belongs. This is 
as it should be. and if, when we graduate, we have done no more than this — the promotion of good 
fellowship in the school — still we will go out having left behind us something durable and worth while.

ATHLETICS 




HEN the class of 1925 entered the Textile school a new era in athletics was started. They were 
a lively bunch, and something had to be done to keep them from running wild. So "Grimmie" 
organized a football team and they set forth to conquer the world. After a lot of bumps and 
a great deal of mauling, they decided they were not world beaters at that, and the school was 
saved from destruction. 

The next thing on the program was a basketball team and a great deal of credit is due the 
boys for the fine showing they made, for you must remember this was before the opening of 
our gym and the boys had to go to the extreme north end of the city for practice. They developed a 
fine team and won the city championship. After basketball "Grimmie" corralled the men up at Buttonwood 
and began the task of grooming a baseball team out of a bunch of would-be ball players ; he succeeded 
admirably. 

During our junior year, football was discontinued and baseball and basketball were the major sports. 
Our new gym was opened this year and Mr. Manning turned out an exceptionally good basketball team, 
and Adam Bayreuther took over baseball. His baseball team was without doubt one of the best that the 
school has ever had representing it. 

Thus we come to our senior year, and we all remember very well, how our basketball team won the Tex- 
tile schools championship, by virtue of victories over Fall River and Lowell. The 1925 baseball team, 
also under the guidance of Bayreuther, shows great promise, having a wealth of material from last year's 
team. 



[Fifty-eight] 



TENNIS 



RE you going- out for the tournaments?" and "Whom are you up against?" were the questions 
frequently heard last September following the announcement of the tournament. As a number 
of the contestants decreased, the interest rose higher and higher, and after many fine matches, 
Fate decreed that the finals should be held over to Spring for warmer weather, and we are now 
waiting for the results. 

The team has progressed wonderfully for the matches that are being made by Manager 
Malcolm Richardson and it is expected that by the close of the term Textile's Tennis team will 
be in the Hall of Fame. 




[Fifty-nine 



BASKETBALL 




HE New Bedford Textile School has always been strong on the basketball court and this year 
was no exception. When Coach Bayreuther called for candidates for the squad, he was greeted 
by four of last year's letter men. They were, Captain "Zip." Carlo w, "Chuck," Orr, "Red" Mul- 
larkey and "Boob" Hathaway. With this as a neucleus it was an easy matter to build up a 
fast team. 

"Joe" Paradis, manager, scheduled the best teams available. For the first time, Textile 
played teams of college grade, namely Brown, Rhode Island State, Northeastern and Tufts. 
Aside from playing this hard schedule, they made a Christmas vacation trip to Adams and played Berk- 
shire Cotton and Drury High. 

One victory that was dear to the hearts of all N. B. T. S. followers was that when they took Lowell 
into camp and for the first time won the Textile school championship thru virtue of another victory over 
Fall River Textile. 

Not being content with a good first team, Bayreuther developed a good second team and they had 
a schedule of their own, that they followed out rather successfully.

Next year Textile should have another good year if not its best. Left over from this year's squad there 
will be "Chuck" Orr, "Boob" Hathaway, "Bill" Bruce and "Red" Mullarkey, practically the same as those 
who started the year as veterans. "Chuck" at the end of the season was chosen Captain for next year 
and should prove an exceptionally able Captain, for he has had plenty of experience and knows the game 
from A. to Z.

BASKET BALL TEAM 1924-25

BASEBALL 




ITH the coming of Spring, the baseball bug bit a number of the students at the school, and so one 
would find them in the gym tossing the ball back and forth trying to get their glass arms into con- 
dition. When the weather got warmer Bayreuther took them up to Buttonwood Park and put 
them through their preliminary training. He had the makings of a first string team left over from 
last year and some very promising material in the Freshman class. 

"Joe" O'Donnel, after taking a look at the crew immediately began hunting up some good teams 
for them to play, resulting in a schedule that rivalled the previous basketball schedule. Bay- 
reuther cut the squad and the remainder organized a second team. The first squad will without doubt 
bring fame to the name of Textile. The battery consists of. Captain "Red" Mullarkey, catch, Lavoskey 
and Cook, pitchers. Infield, "Casey" Searls, third, "Flash" Carlson, short, "Zip" Carlow and "Ping" Palla- 
troni second, and Rigby first. The outfield, representing the heavy artillery in the batting averages, is 
Rooney, White, Waring, and Tom. Utility men, Liebmann and Warren. 

Thus with this gathering Textile expects to conquer the baseball world and it is our earnest wish that 
they do, because nothing boosts a school better than a good name in athletics.

TWENTY-SECOND CONVENTION OF PHI PSI FRATERNITY 



NDER the auspices of Gamma Chapter the Annual convention was a great success, extending from 
April twenty-fourth to the twenty-seventh. 

The delegates from Beta were Andrew G. Mercer, John H. Hood and Charles F. Orr, Jr., 
all of whom appreciated the wonderful hospitality extended by Gamma. 

All the members gathered at the house on Friday noon and spent most of the remainder of the 
day going over old friendship days. Saturday consisted of the general session which ended with 
a Buffet Lunch. The afternoon was spent in different forms of sports; Golf, Tennis, and Base 
Ball being those mostly participated in. The Annual Banquet, which ended sometime late in the evening 
(?), proved to be a very fitting conclusion of a wonderful day. 

Sunday morning, the convention having officially come to a close, the delegates reluctantly took their 
leave, each returning to his respective chapter, his mind refreshed by pleasant memories of a truly worth 
while convention.

THE CHINESE STUDENTS' CLUB 




HE Chinese Student's Club of 1925 has but seven members, having six in the graduating- class and 
one in the junior class and we are looking forward for more students to come to carry on the name 
created by the charter members. Although small as a club, she has the distinction of being one of 
the best clubs in many respects. From the club we have the advantage of learning the situations of 
the different parts of China, because we have members coming from both the North and South. 

It is with pleasure that we announce that some of the members of the club are going to study 

business in some reputed universities of this country, after their graduation; for they feel that 

to know Textile manufacturing only is not sufficient when they have with them the ambition to develop 

and revolutionize the industries in China. The other members will devote their time in getting useful and 

practical experience for a year or so before leaving for the other side. 

To think of the opportunities and the privileges presented to us, we feel that it is our business to get 
what is best, in order that we may be able to convince the people at home to change their views and adopt 
the modern methods in building up business as they do in this country. Undoubtedly, there is a great future 
in the various industries in China today, especially in the cotton end of it, but there is a great deal to do in 
training the help to greater efficiency in manufacturing. There are many things we wish to carry out as 
soon as we have a chance and we are now preparing ourselves to meet the situations as we go along. 

Hereby, on behalf of the club, I wish to extend our thanks to the school for all the valuable advice and 
worthy instructions we have received and to the different clubs for their notable services rendered us and 
hope that our good friendship will be maintained forever and ever.

SOCIAL 




URING our pilgrimage as Freshies and Juniors we were somewhat handicapped because of our 
superiors and although we had great ideas to put to usage our unfortunate elders held a power- 
ful hand over us. 

But fate took its course in the fall of 1924, and we as Seniors endeavored to hold a Senior 
Hop, and Hayden, Paradise and Orr were appointed to take charge of the affair and fatten the 
class treasury which they did, and it was such an overwhelming success that all hands were 
asking, "when we were to repeat our Hop?" And in a short time the same committee with 
the aid of the fellow members of the class successfully held another dance in the School Gymnasium and 
the receipts were for our class banquet. 

Then as Lent gradually overtook our social activities it was decided that the minstrel show be 
dropped in favor of another dance after Lent, to which the following committee was appointed: Ramos, 
Pallatroni, and Oscar. 

This last dance of the season was a credit to the committee as everything went off in great style.

ALUMNI ASSOCIATION 




HE Alumni of The School Worth While extend to the graduating class of 1925 very hearty 
good wishes for a prosperous future in their chosen vocation. 

Soon you will be full fledged Alumni eager to gain a high place for yourselves in the textile 
world, and the fact that you are a graduate of New Bedford Textile School undoubtedly will 
help to give you a standing that you could not have obtained in some other way; but remember 
that it is your duty to maintain a high standard in your work so that you may be a credit to 
yourself, to your fellow Alumni, and to your School. 
It sometimes happens that younger graduates feel that the mention of the fact that they posses 
a diploma should entitle them to a position of agent, or at least superintendent of a mill. We older 
graduates know that you will meet many hard knocks, and be forced to pass many trials and tests 
before you even gain some minor position of authority ; but with the advantage that you hold of having 
been educated in the best Textile School in the world, in the course of time, we will be proud to say 
"Here is a fellow Alumnus of NBTS who has advanced rapidly." 

In after years we hope to know that you have not severed all ties with your Alma Mater and that 
you constantly keep in touch with the School and the Alumni when you are looking for a new position 
or when you want to hire another good man from the Alumni Association of The School Worth While. 

A. H. GRIMSHAW, Secretary. 



PS. A dollar a year is the due and you can pay Miss Ruby Brooks, Treasurer, address 103 Maple St., 
New Bedford, Mass.

Cook — I've lost my bearings. 

She— That's" Original, most fellows run out 



of gas. 



In all this nonsense it is for the best that a 
few words of good advice be added. Did it 
ever occur to you that the people who are 
always urging you on to bigger and better 
things, urging you to work harder for the suc- 
cess of each and every undertaking you attempt, 
are just the people who want the money for 
which you have toiled so earnestly? For in- 
stance, the Senior banquet. 



We have heard from a reliable source that 
Al Radway is thinking of taking a P. G. course 
in knitting, in order to get a more familiar 
knowledge of what the "young things" are wear-

2nd Jicky — Perhaps maybe it's because it's

Customer in Kelleher's Drug store ; "Are you 
sure this hair tonic is good?'' 

Red Murphy (pointing to Burt) "See that 
clerk near the rubber goods department? Well 
he pulled the cork out of one of those bottles 
with his teeth yesterday. That's how he got 
that mustache." 



A TESTIMONIAL TO J. W. 
Oh brushes, as we look back to thee ; 

Our eyes are filled with tears. 
We'll never forget the cleaning we did 

Throughout those three long years. 

As we look upon our school life. 

With brushes passed out every night, 
We wonder, if in three more years, 

Those brushes will still be in sight.

continued high speeds, the machinery will wear 
out faster, won't it?" 

Taft — "Why yes, its just like leading a fast 
life. The more you run around, the sooner you 
wear out." 

Wise guy in hack of room — "Yah, hut more 
production." 



The weary student fusser 

Pursues his hits of pash 
With a maximum of women 

And a minimum of cash.

THE 23rd SLAM 

1. 

N. B. T. S. is my school, 

I shall want no other. 

It maketh me be there at 8:30, 

I shivereth with cold, 

It worketh all fellows extremely 

And they care not one. 

Yea tho I work every minute of the day, 

I shall fear no 90's. 

For thou, O faculty, art with me, 

Thine assignments are petrifying. 

Thou criticizeth my work in the presence of 
many, 

For I am to become a sweeper, 

And I look not strong enough for the profession. 

Surely Cards and Pickers shall follow me eter- 
nally, 

And I shall dwell in N. B. T. S. forever. 

2. 

Mr. Holt is my teacher, I shall want no other. 

He maketh me to construct awful designs, 

He reproveth me constantly, 

He liketh not my actions, 

And leadeth me into his room for my mark'; 
sake. 

Yea tho I work 'till I am cock-eyed. 

I shall never succeed for thou, Mr. Holt, art 
near me, 



Thy English and brogue overcome me. 

Thou preparest a sermon for me 

In the presence of my dear class-mates, 

Thou causeth me to draw fancy designs, 

For my practical experience. 

Surely thy presence will haunt me all the days of 

my life' 
And I shall assist designers forever. 

AMEN. 



D. T. — Would you advise the use of hydrogen- 
peroxide as a tooth lotion? 

W. R. — Why I'd say yes, but not if they were 
bought at Woolworth's. 



Waldron — How would you determine what 
size motor to use to displace a 10 H. P. steam 
engine? 

Wong — Figure it out. 



He — Less is a three letter man. 
She — Base ball, Basket ball, and Track I sup- 
pose. 

He— No — I. O. U. 



Sam White doesn't go out riding nites any

OUR PROFS. 

Some profs are so dead their wives could 
collect insurance on them. 



Teaching is like bull righting — you got to 
kill a lot of hull to sret by with the crowd. 



The height of absentmindedness is the pro- 
fessor who asks a clerk for 30x3^ balloon tires 
for his Bar-sarkel. 



The above might be a case of being all tired 



out. 



It used to be you could tell a prof, by his 
dress — now you can't tell him anything. 



Some instructors are so distrustful they would 
accuse Adam for not having a home in the 
garden of Eden. 



The reason Textile instructors haven't formed 
a union is because no two of them can agree. 



Some profs are like cross-word puzzles 
their kev letters are D and F. 



Missionary — "My mission is to save women." 
Mercer — "Then save one for me." 



THOSE DARN REPORTS 
When we got our mid-year reports 

And pierced them with longing eyes. 
The forties and fifties, that are dished to us 

'Tis then that our temper flies. 

We frame up some passable tale of woe. 
That we to our folks must tell. 

He's down on me. he hates me so! 
I did my lessons well ! 

This was the tale when we got below. 

The teachers were to blame 
Indeed they should be all kicked out. 

It is a beastly shame. 



Joe Novick's face is dark, 

Joe Novick's face is grave 

Joe Novick's face is one disgrace 

Joe Novick needs a shave. 



Taft — Wake up. you can't sleep in this class. 
Cook — I know it, I've been trying for half 
an hour. 



We wish to emphatically deny that Leo War- 
ing is a victim of Sleeping Sickness. 



Remember the hard boiled egg got that way 
from being in hot water.

JOKES (Cont.) 



Prof. Brooks of our Chemical department, 
after a life-long study, has compiled the follow- 
ing data about a new element "Woman." After 
a careful analysis of Prof. Brooks report, we 
feel greatly honored to be the first to publish it, 
as it is complete in every detail. Here it is : 

A New Element — "Woman" 

Symbol— WO 

A member of the Human family. 

Occurrence : Can be found wherever man 
exists. Seldom occurs in the free or native 
state. Quality depends on the state in which 
it is found. With the exception of Massachu- 
setts state, the combined state is to be preferred. 

Physical Properties : All colors and sizes. 
Always appears in disguised condition. Surface 
of face seldom unprotected by coating of paint 
or film of powder (composition immaterial). 
Boils at nothing, and may freeze at any moment. 
However, it melts when properly treated. Very 
bitter if not used correctly. 

Chemical Properties : Extremely active. Pos- 
sesses a great affinity for gold, silver, platinum 
and precious stones of all kinds. Violent re- 
action when left alone by men. Ability to ab- 
sorb all sorts of expensive food at any time. 
Undissolved by liquids, but activity is greatly 
increased when saturated with spirit solutions. 



Sometimes yields to pressure. Turns green when 
placed next to a better appearing sample. Ages 
very rapidly. Fresh variety has great magnetic 
attraction. 

Note : Highly explosive and likely to be dan- 
gerous in inexperienced hands. 



WHO SAYS 



It all depends. 

I'll pop ya off. 

You know what I do to fellows who crib in 

exams. 
CO-O-O-O-O-M-M-e 
I repeat I'M no dang fool. 
Minus 10%, minus 20%, minus 30%, etc. 
That makes it nice. 
You know my father? 
You know what I mean.

I can fix you up anytime.

Crompton — I take great joy in giving you 81

Oscar — Aw make it a hundred and enjoy your-

JOKES (Cont.) 




The graduating class is to be commended on 
the way they supported the staff of this book. 
It gladdened our hearts to see the way the copy 
poured in on us. We were literally buried with 
the stuff. Yes, we were not. 

The one redeeming feature, the letter box 
was not worn out and can be saved for next 
year ; it collects dust wonderfully and "Red" 
doesn't have to walk all around the library when 
dusting. Nevertheless, mates, when you read 
these jokes and one hits you, forget it, and think 
only of those on the other fellow. A joke isn't 
a joke unless someone is the goat, and everybody 
demands plenty of jokes. Nice fellows. 



AFTERWARD 
The time has come for parting— 
Our happy school days done, 
Yet our thoughts grow sweeter 
Of the class of Twenty-five. 

So let's be bright and merry 
Like song birds in the Spring 
As parting, ever cheery, 
A fond adieu we sing.

JOKES (Cont.) 



Holmes — "Say, that's a fast-looking- car you've 
got there. What's the most you ever got out 
of it?" 

Radway — "Five times in a mile." 



Bill — "There goes Horace. He took the mon- 
key gland treatment." 

Pill — "But he's flirting with all the Men that 
he sees." 

Bill — "Yes, poor fellow. They grafted the 
glands of a female monk into him." 



Night Watchman — "Young man, are you go- 
ing to kiss that girl?" 

Mercer (straightening up) — -"No sir." 
Night Watchman — "Here, then ; hold my lan- 
tern." 



LESS LIQUOR FOR LIZZ 

Garage Man — "How much d'ye want?" 

Burt— "A gallon." 

Garage Man — "Wot's the idea — weanin' it?" 



"This is the fig tree you've heard so much 
about." 

"Oh ! I thought the leaves were larger." 



Robinson — "Lipstick ?" 

She — No, but I can hold them there. 



Taft (in cotton classing) — What causes tinges 
and stain? 

Novick — Terbacker juice. 



Crompton (Steam class) — How many times do 
the hot gases pass over the tubes in a B. & W. 
boiler. 

Mullarkey — Three times a day. 



It would be a lot of fun to see Itch Papkin and 
Ike Waldron cast all alone on a desert island; 
they would make such good pals, you know. 



We sometimes wonder what will happen to 
the boys when they lose the paternal influence 
of the graduating men. 



"Ed" Ramos's neck is not habitually dirty, 
that's only his natural color. 



Jo Paradis thinks that 35 cents would be too

MODERN TEXTILE LUBRICANTS 

The fact is, over 70% of them use NON-FLUID 
OIL regularly. Why? Because they get ad- 
vantages which they can obtain from no other 
lubricant — advantages such as these : 

Relief from oil-stained goods — 

NON-FLUID OIL doesn't drip or spatter from bearings. 

Minimum wear and tear on machines — 

NON-FLUID OIL stays in bearings and puts a positive 
check on friction. 

Reduced lubricant expense — 

NON-FLUID OIL prevents all waste — goes at least three 
limes as far as liquid oil.
